  • Mises on government

    I'm much more familiar with Rothbard than Mises but I know that he was heavily influenced by him. Rothbard called to privatize everything including courts and the police.

  • Is there a libertarian theory of Checks and Balances ?

    I notice that Austrian political theory views the state as acting like a single person. Hans Hermann Hoppe is particularly guilty of this in his lectures. He talks about the state being a territorial monopolist that prints money and so on. I find this contrary to methodological individualism. By doing...
